CUI Announces Development of Digital POL Modules

CUI Inc’s power division V-Infinity announces that it is developing a line of digital point-of-load (POL) modules that will utilize Powervation’s digital power-conversion ICs. The new Novum series will be focused on providing complete, easy-to-use solutions to make digital power accessible to a wide array of users. The modules will combine high power density in a compact footprint and offer a wide array of digital control and power management functions. It will utilize Powervation’s patented Auto-control ™ technology which will allow the new modules to work in real time ensuring stability and improved transient responsiveness.

The Novum modules will operate off a 12 V nominal input and come in 12 A and 25 A configurations. Output voltages will be programmable and will utilize standard PMBus commands for configuring and monitoring. A wide array of digital power control functions will be supported including current monitoring, temp sensing, margining and voltage sequencing. The Novum series is being developed for a board design engineer to realize better energy efficiencies and improved time to market compared to the traditional analog approach through design flexibility and system optimization.

“The Novum series will be the first in a line of fully licensed digital products designed to meet the growing customer trend towards digital power,” stated Jeff Schnabel, CUI’s VP of Marketing. “We are excited about entering a market with products that will be able to take full advantage of the benefits of digital power in a platform that is simple for the designer to implement in their system.” Novum series samples will be available for select OEM customers in Q4.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
